At the nexus of creativity, technology and business, the Music Engineering and Production degree from University of South Wales is designed for graduates who want to further develop their music engineering and production skills, to establish a career as a professional producer in the music industry or related fields.
An important element of the music engineering masters is the practical application of your knowledge to generate highly creative work.
Allied areas are also examined, which allows graduates to apply their skills in many other media-related fields, including film and animation. Such a strategic approach to your higher-level study engenders responsibility, critical thinking, problem-solving, and the highly creative generation of musical and visual tangibles.
Engineering and production professionals work as music producers, sound engineers, writers and arrangers, sound designers and mixers/remixers in surround. Career opportunities will vary according to an individual’s capabilities and passion, but it is expected that graduates of USW’s MSc Music Engineering and Production should play a full role in shaping the future of music and sound in the UK and further afield.
